No Way of Escape

Girolamo Savonarola.

I counsel you to return to God, to live after the manner of a good Christian, to repent the past, and recur to piety.  Otherwise, I make known to you that severe chastisement awaits you, and that you shall be scourged in your substance, your flesh, and your kindred.

Likewise I announce to you that your life is near its end; that if you obey not my words, you will go to hell, and this letter will be brought up against you before the judgment-seat of God, and leave you no way of escape.

— Girolamo Savonarola to the prince of Mirandola,
Count Galeotto Pico, 26 March 1496.
